Katy Perry In Cosmo

Cosmopolitan, the world’s largest women’s magazine and the biggest-selling monthly magazine on U.S. newsstands, today announced that international music sensation Katy Perry will appear on the July cover of all 62 editions, marking the first-ever global takeover for the brand. Comedian, TV personality and best-selling author Chelsea Handler interviewed Perry for the cover story, which will be available for newsstand purchase in the U.S. on Tuesday, June 3rd. See the cover HERE.

“Katy’s music and attitude have universal appeal to young women everywhere,” said Joanna Coles, editor in chief, Cosmopolitan. “She crosses all cultural boundaries. Her music is soulful and empowering in equal measure. She’s the first Cosmo global icon.”

Katy Perry cemented her status as a best-selling superstar with the global success of her second studio album, "Teenage Dream," which debuted at No. 1 in eight countries and spent more than two years on Billboard's Top 200 album sales chart. She became the only female artist to have five No. 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart ("California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." and "Last Friday Night"). The special edition, "Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection," added "Part of Me" and "Wide Awake" to Perry's list of nine Top 40 chart-toppers (dating back to her multi-platinum debut album, 2008's "One of the Boys," which generated four hit singles: "I Kissed A Girl," "Hot N Cold," "Thinking of You" and "Waking Up In Vegas"). "Roar," the first single from her new album, "Prism," became Perry's 10th No. 1 Top 40 track after debuting at No. 1 on iTunes in 68 countries with 557,024 downloads in its first week of release, the biggest digital song sales week of 2013. A successful follow-up single, "Unconditionally", was released in late 2013, followed by "Dark Horse", which helped Perry set the record at Top 40 for most total weeks (46) at No. 1 in the Billboard airplay chart's archives. Her current single, "Birthday," is already in the top 15 on the Billboard Top 40 chart after just three weeks, and she just kicked off her Prismatic World Tour.

In her interview with the magazine, Katy dishes on whether she’d ever get back together with ex John Mayer, the longest she's gone without sex, needing Google rehab, and even not wanting to take the stage following a BeyoncĂ© performance. Chelsea Handler had this to say to Katy: “You were married to [Russell Brand]. Then you broke up and started dating John Mayer. These are two men that most people would say, 'If you’re not going to date two people in this world, it should be these two.’" For Katy’s response, pick up a copy of the July issue of Cosmopolitan on newsstands June 3rd.

In the meantime, Katy has a personal message for her Cosmo fans: “If you’re secretly reading this mag and not really allowed to, don’t worry, I did it too.”
